What can i interest you in a few shares of tops. Yeah i'm interested. You know chris. I sometimes make fun of so many that are coming out. We all talk about spanky stocks but to me this was because it gives you an entry into the collectibles market now there are some publicly traded collectibles companies funk. Oh comes to mind. They make those great bobblehead collectibles. You can purchase online or in stores but the opportunity to embrace to invest in baseball card. Collectibles is really neat. You know tops is not a small company more. It's been around for a decades sales last year. Rose twenty three percent year over year. Two five hundred sixty seven million bucks.

I make fun of them personally. Sometimes they're giving you opportunities as investors opportunities to take part in sectors of the economy that we might not be able to aspects of introduced a lot of us to new avenues into alternative investments in the cloud cope. Collectibles market is an alternative investment avenue. That i've been interested for a long time.

Casting the net wider: remaking the welfare state

"Good evening my fellow americans to light. I like to talk to you about where we are as we mark one year. She's everything stopped because of this pandemic last night. President joe biden spoke to america in primetime address from the white house for the first time since taking office he promised to direct states to make all adults eligible for covid vaccine by may and discussed the bill he had just signed into law. The american rescue plan one point nine trillion dollar stimulus program extends unemployment. Benefits it helps. Small businesses lowers healthcare premiums for many it provides. Food and nutrition keeps families in their homes. America's not the only country that's responded to the crisis with increasing generosity. I kind of went in. It was like a state of panic. That i honestly i can't tell you day-to-day thoughts were because they were just scrambled. Like what am i gonna do. What am i gonna do. How am i going to survive. How am i going to what. That's more good. Hope a fifty. Seven year old self employed chef based in canada when the pandemic swept away all of her work. She didn't expect much outside. Help after alberta's oil crash in two thousand fourteen. She received no government support and had to close her restaurant. But this time around with covid nineteen. The federal government included the self employed in. Its rescue package. I honestly i couldn't believe it. Until i saw myself until i filled out the application i pressed met and two days later. There was money in my bank account. And i was absolutely shocked across the world from america to canada to western europe. The pandemic prompted a shift in thinking about the role governments can and should play in crises. The greatest expansion of the wealth estate in living memory in this past yet social nada is our public policy editor. She's been tabulating that expansion which currently stands at nearly sixteen trillion dollars. That's more than four times. The support that countries provided during the financial crisis of two thousand and seventy thousand nine. And it's a shot departure from the pas not just in size but in shape too and because of that this could well mark the start of a new chapter for the welfare state. How do you mean how was this response. Different from what came before significantly. I think it mocked a risk shift from individuals to the state with governments essentially bailing out the people say things like schemes in britain and much of europe as well as cash gifts and in unemployment benefits in america what lawsuit of the state stepping up and taking a lot of risks that otherwise would have fallen onto households and individuals that is a sharp contrast from what we've seen over the past couple of decades when risks such as example being replaced by an algorithm or foreign worker had actually increasing been offloaded from governments and employees own individuals and you saw a lot of countries just for pragmatic reasons really move to universalism so with government prefers blanket benefits instead of fussing of eligibility. Or what's the basis of the way that it was before the pandemic the risen one model of course of welfare state but if we take as a starting point side of a social contract where there is a certain amount of poverty relief and social security that is supplied by the state to go back to suit of the early twentieth century. So the great depression in america really triggered the idea of we need some social security and in europe of course in the second world war was reading the moment when people started to realize that there were these collective big risks that they wanted to ensure against and then the big shift in both sides of the atlantic ready staw in about the seventy s and the welfare state becomes leaner and more focused on getting people into jobs and so benefit make order to get the incentives work or boosted welfare in many countries become stigmatized and at the same time. The labor market is made. More flexible has made easy to fire people. And you really see particularly from the early ninety s on more and more risk being shuffled back to individuals but even before covert hit there was talk about a need to change things right absolutely as with so many things covid nineteen has really shown quite a start light on the flaws in the traditional model and although the lessons are different for every country there are a few general ones. The welfare state on the hall was built around yesterday's worker middle skilled work who today is increasingly. Rare will become even rarer we've seen the labor market polarize over the last couple of decades in rich countries. The sheriff skilled in high-skilled workers growing whereas middle skilled and indeed middle income jobs have been falling and will continue to fall and the pandemic also related to that highlighted. How little job. And income security many of our essential workers indeed have because they fall into that low paid bracket low security bracket and then the other thing that covert has exposed is the vulnerability of work with kids of course when schools closed. There was suddenly this extra job that needed to be done. The situation has put childcare which we knew was an issue before the pandemic but it sort of forced onto the agenda and one of the encouraging things. I think that might be coming out of this. Is countries making better plans for things like child benefit. So part of the coronavirus relief plan. Joe biden will temporarily raise the child tax credit quite significantly and democrats already whispering the really like to make this change permanent. And do you think we'll see that pattern more. Broadly a will to make permanent to the kinds of changes. The governments were essentially shocked into by the pandemic. The will is that. I think it's too early to tell but the demand is clearly. Then that's an important start. Say lots of people. Such as mrs hope who we heard earlier have experienced vulnerability that can come with the show but also have seen how the state can help these moments of shock. And i think it would be very hard in a next crisis for states to roll out similar policy bazookas to help the people so i think on the demand side and again this is something we already sold before the pandemic domon strengthening for better more generous safety nets are that will only grow on the back of the pandemic experience whether the will is that is launching a political question and it's also a fiscal question but i am carefully hopeful because this past year has provided a live experiment of all sorts of policies that otherwise would have taken years to get the political backing for and so after all this experimentation. What are the lessons from the pandemic that you think should last. I think the most important goal here is just to ensure or cushion workers against certain shocks and just to make that a bit more practical and most of communists have argued that covered his shown the generosity of benefits should be pegged to the state of the economy so that when indeed were going through a mass period of shock and it's much harder to actually find a job benefits should be more generous. And when the economy's healthy again then you can make them a bit. Less generous against more flexibility in the welfare system to short revamped post covid social safety net would on the one hand provide enough flexibility to incentivize work but also have a state that wasn't afraid to step in when disaster hits and crucially estate that would also invest in human capital in childcare in health in educating the next generation as well as rescaling older workers today and that second element is important because just bringing out a huge umbrella on the stormiest days won't be

How Being Yourself Makes You a Better Leader with author Minter Dial

"I want. say congrats on your latest book. You lead how being yourself makes you a better leader. What was the motivation for this book. So just like in the same idea. Be yourself how do you do that. And how much of you should you bring into work. We talk about authenticity transparency. But is it about being radically transparent. Radically empathic and radically you totally you. So that was the question. Mark ahead in my mind as i launched intas but actually i started writing this book in two thousand and fourteen and at the time i wanted to be like the book of my life like everything full out work personal and everything in between and it took me a long time to Stu and come up with this line which is hopefully to change the way we lead a not just in business but ourselves because in the end of the day. If there's is huge lack of engagement oversee the previously to books haven't exactly figure that out and then to understand how we can bring more of ourselves feel engaged fulfilled and up bullshitting ourselves at work. Which hopefully has knock on effective leading everybody else to want to be with you. Yeah i mean. Starting in two dozen fourteen. Roughly six years was their their moment where it accelerated for. You does seem like a long time. But i know other books. People have written not you but other people could take ten years fifteen years sometimes so. I'm just curious if there is an unlock moment for you. Well it's great. You know like those more academic papers need lottery such things like that. No this was the actually. The thing that happened here was sort of blocking moments Blocking tackle i had. I went off to croatia. At thirty thousand words. I was like all excited came back wife about it. I've really got a big slug of all of us. Had something happened. And i had actually three big loud bazooka moment blocking me or changing the course of my direction which included a call from the television station. Pbs saying hey mental. Your story so great. Let's put on television and clearly. That wasn't part of what i was thinking and and i'm busy doing something else. Meaning internet this actually takes preference so i then put on hold when off that one and then a friend of mine killed himself and that kind of took on another path and then so i've had these different things that have happened anyway. I would say that the walk. In kensington park with a friend of mine who had been published kogan page was the catalyst to getting contact with them and they said awesome. Great idea really. Love it and next thing you know. I had a publisher and that happened of course before the old pandemic started. We'll let's get into started down this path. And i stopped you apologised for the rabbit hole but i wanna to talk about what you mean by you lead. You talked about authenticity radically being yourself. Tell us a little bit more about what you mean by. You lied so i. I generally feel that everybody has leadership potential and but a lot of times. You sort of like won't take away the responsibility and this listen to orders. And i feel like if there's such disengagement at work something is not happening so the of initial premise. Is you lead you and you need to be master of you. Which essentially means at its heart getting to know who you are and what matters to you and so often we go through life. Allan where we're doing what we're supposed to do getting the title on the business card getting extrinsic ideas doing following in my father's footsteps or not as man whatever and we're not actually in touch with ourselves and this is a particular challenge when you're successful often mail. You just think that this is the thing and so the one. I'm trying to really griffin to is to be in check with who we are as an individual and then once we have that established we get rid of some of the chips in the shoulders. Were more cognizant when we're being emotional and irascible and disagreeable and and potentially more vulnerable and then we can definitely model a behavior that the rest of the team might follow through with got it and i mean those sound like great things to do like just a better know myself to be more aware of my own tics and talks. Yeah why is this important for leaders. Do you think well on one hand. My feeling is that leadership is still wonky. If not a terribly wrong and the other hand i think that is much as some people want to be authentic. It's they're not sure what they're being authentic about and why they're doing it so very quickly you can be put off the course you can be doing something because you think it's good to do because it's like there's the narrative being sustainable development is great. Let's do it but there's no real hook anchor back into who you are as we end up doing so many things because it's good to do. Oh that sounds like a really smart idea let's do that and by justifying rationalizing all these smart ideas. We actually ended up frustrating ourselves. Because we're going to not get to want to get too so i feel like the issue is. We've all been to university a lot of us or you know educated and were reading even if you haven't gone university it's fine but with intellectual curiosity we we kind of think we know ourselves because we have that arrogance may be pretension says i want of course i know myself. I'm fifty six allen. God dammit you crack question me on who i am but i think we have this sort of absolute ability gloss over the details. I'm an executive powerful. And i'm excited. I'm confident on curious. I'd fine but that kind of describes everybody at some level to sort of leggings generic concepts that you want to project but who are you deeply inside and if you're excited about sustainable development can you not attach it to something that's more relevant to you for example or hopefully i'll have one day grandkids. Well i'd like for them to live in an environment where okay well. That's at least a more personal hook as opposed to the intellectual size that it was going to help our customers think that we're better people.

Airliner Hit By MANPAD!

"So i wanna tell you about an airliner a airbus. A three hundred guinea hit by a man pad. So you're wondering probably wondering what is a man pad that is a man portable air defense system. mp a day that's Looks like a bazooka. It's a shoulder. Mounted sam surface to air missile. And it can be carried by antibody. Because it's not very heavy and has a three pound warhead now. Three pound warhead. Doesn't sound like he'll do a lot of damage what it can knock a big airplane out of the sky now when i was in vietnam We were called. Destroy la back. Then the sa seven and it's picked up the name grail also but in russia they still call it destroy. It's a russian Device and back then. It was heat-seeking only work only hit your airplane from behind what we were would home in a basically on a heat source which typically is the exhaust but now they have a new version of the strella which can home in on an airplane from the front. Also so here. Is this eighty three hundred Taking off from iraq going there. They're headed toward took out from baghdad. Headed toward bahrain and a three man crew of was seen firing one of these mad pads and it struck the airplane. There's a picture in our our in our Web page of what. It looked like after that airplane got struck it was struck in the left wing and fortunately it was right after takeoff so the left wing fuel tank was full so there was no fuel air vapor in the tank because if they've been vapor that would have been highly explosive but it was bernie and The missile in addition to punch a big hole in the wing took out the hydraulic system. So now the the crew is flying this airplane with no flight controls. They're doing like what united airlines flight to thirty two did. They're using differential thrust to manage the the the altitude the heading the airspeed. They're using that to fly around and try to come back and land back at back at baghdad and it took about ten minutes for them to get back around now. The flight engineer on this flight was doing a magnificent job because if the left if the source of fuel to the left engine had run dry. They wouldn't have been able to control the airplane anymore. They needed all of their engines for differential thrust. They needed both engines to be able to to operate so that they could maintain directional control. So he's constantly monitoring the state of fuel in the left wing when the state of fuel is leaking out dramatically. And he's using crush meeting to get fuel back to the other engines so that they could continue to power both engines so they brought it in. They made a landing. They didn't incredible job made landing. They were not able to control the airplane. What's it was on the ground than it went for. Like a thousand feet off the runway. But but no one was injured. The airplane was substantially damaged and it eventually was scrapped. So why do i bring this up. Well man pads are available everywhere They ever virtually every country where there's any violence you will find that. There are men pads. If you look on on wikipedia you'll see a list of countries where there is is documented documented. Proof that they have man pads somewhere there and all it takes is one person who's been very briefly trained in how to use it. You turn it on. Turn the machine on and you're aiming at an airplane and squeeze the trigger. That's basically it and so you could be. You could be at risk especially when you fly. Overseas special show fly to third world countries. You could be at risk of a man pad anywhere you fly. So that's something to think about a three pound warhead. Doesn't sound like much but it can do serious damage in its knocked airplanes. Who even back. When i was flying at four as there was a foreign. My squadron got out of this guy by by estrella

America’s Zombie Companies Have Racked Up $1.4 Trillion of Debt

"Zombie apocalypse on wall street. Hundreds of big name companies wants american icons are now among the walking dead names like boeing carnival delta exxon macy's. They aren't making enough money to pay the interest. On the mountains of debt they feasted on during the pandemic. Nearly two hundred companies have joined the zombie ranked since march and their numbers are growing total debt obligations now nearly one point four trillion dollars. So is there any hope for the walking dead here guy. I mean what's interesting. Is that a lot of these names. They are names that we talk about trading on this show. So how should we start thinking about this before we get in the walking dead. I just want to point out. That's a great job by our crack. staff leading. With of course the cranberries zombie which is a bit of an obvious choice in the great delors. Oh reared who lost too soon. She was obviously the founder of the band wonderful vocalist. I might have gone a different direction. And maybe we could've played something like this for example. Melissa leo the crack staff is listening into the show. Why the zombies. No it's important to point out the folks at home. It's more important than actually trading our first topic in what is known as the block of the. It's not it's not more important. And i and we'll talk about the black and we'll talk about zombie companies because i think it's important and last night we mentioned macy's and you talked about one hundred dollars table. Then tim said might be the thousand dollar table. And i think collectively. We thought there was a real good chance that with test that nine fifty five level which was the june high and i think it got up to nine twenty five today on two or three times normal volume. Now's the time to be taking profits. A lotta shorts have been squeezed other companies that you mentioned delta for example. I think that's a completely different ballgame. But what i will say. This counterintuitive is. This may seem if the economy starts to get better. You would think this is good for these companies but that means interest rates economic higher. And that's going to cripple some of these companies. We talked about it last night. And i'm sure one of our guests coming out. We'll talk about that again. Tim how do you start thinking about macy's and that debt that they apparently can't service. I mean when i think about dombi i think about that thriller video and i know guys got that red leather jacket with all the zippers on it. So just just to be clear. I think when i think about those companies you just mentioned they're all they're all different in terms of their Potential to be proper zombies a great band by the way. But i think you know boeing not assam company You know it's not Boeing is a company that has the ability to raise debt. But more importantly yes. Boeing's business has been totally disrupted boeing. His burned through so much cast in the last year. And it will burn through some castro most of twenty-one but it will be free cash flow positive by twenty two in probably be neutral by the fourth quarter so calling them assam company. I think is absurd. Calling macy's zombie company is something that's at least a fair analysis although again macy's showed that free cash flow with something that they expect they're going to have in twenty twenty one two and a company that raised a lot of money To to at least be able to fight another day including having a three billion dollar asset back facility is something you don't do cartwheels over macy's position right now but the recovery there and i'm long so i've made this clear. I actually think there's more of a recovery story even though i don't think macy's gets better overnight. Delta relative to other airlines is not even close to his ambi- story dealt is actually going to start to make money towards the fourth quarter of next year and we're not talking about a normalized business. We're talking about a business where odyssey international comes under a lot of pressure. So i also just think that the fed and the role that the fed is playing here and the role that the fed will play just through talking About the bazooka in their pocket means a lot of these debt markets. Don't have a whole lot of an impact in the next six months To what people think they're gonna do. I really don't expect it so it doesn't matter that these companies zombie companies it doesn't matter that delta added twenty four billion dollars in debt since the pandemic started by baldwin. At what point do we start getting worried about that. Debt load and these companies guy made the point that if the economy gets better you would think that that'd be better for these companies that can make more money they can etc said sell more whatever they make but then interest rates go higher. So how do you weigh that. Yeah those are all interesting. Factors that keep into To keep in the front of your mind. And tim did a good job of laying out the differences of these companies. But speaking to your question right the commonality of all these of these companies that they have as you have looted to have added significant portions of the balance sheet this year and they're burning through cash at a rate and their revenues are down at rates that we just haven't seen we're talking about you know seven and a half billion dollars of cash burn and eighteen billion dollars of casper burn boeing's example seven and a half carnivals example. So you have this push pushing pull situation. What i will say is that you've seen across the board. All these companies put one thing. I right and that is runway. And so they've taken on this debts that they have enough cash to get them to their next stop in order for them to continue to be able to operate what we've seen is them trying to achieve operating leverage by reducing staff count. And that is what. I think the topic that we're kind of trying to speak to. Here's when you start slashing human capital when you stop investing in capital expenditures when you stop innovating that is what leads you to being somewhat of a dead zombie company even after you've getting on the other side of this debt service coverage ratio also something to keep in mind. You can't meet your interest. Can't meet your debt service coverage ratio. You got serious problems dan. Yeah i think bond would makes a great point there and just look at our auto industry over the last ten years and obviously gm came out of bankruptcy ten years and wiped out a lot of that debt but they had a huge government interests that was really carried along and probably hurt them a lot of different ways as far as innovation and the way the bhawan just described it. It's clearly hurt for a lot of ways and look at the auto companies are doing really well right now so i think that's a great point. The other point on this make about this is that this is the world that we live in. It's the world that a lot of parts of our planet have been looking at japan over the last thirty years or whatever and then we are going to be saddled with debt whether it's consumers whether it's sovereign balance-sheets whatever the heck it is corporates. That's just the way it is. And that's why interest rates are really never gonna meaningfully. Go up again. Because we can't service all the debt and just make one other point if you think about twenty twenty and what's happened here. Obviously the fed has done their job. They hit this crisis early to make sure that we did not have large-scale bankruptcies right of some major corporations which would really snowball the unemployment situation here but let me just tell you this here. We are now four months out from expanded unemployment benefits. Were heading into the holiday season. We're in a very rocky transition and a lame duck. Congress and there is no more fiscal stimulus for small businesses and consumers. That need it really bad. So the fact that we have a trillion dollars for a bunch of companies that were buying eighty five percent using their free cash flow to eighty five percent of their free cash flow to buy back their stock over the last five years. The airlines and we can't bail out restaurants so we can't bail out consumers that is really troubling to me. Yeah we're really tough spot right now in terms of that bridge to the other side waiting for that other side for the vaccines actually be distributed and as well as injected into the arms of americans

NRA Issues F Rating To Bugs Bunny For Tying Up Guns Into Pretzel Shape

"In the wake of new. York. Attorney, General, Latisha James's lawsuit against their organization. The powerful National Rifle Association is clapping back. I. Think I'm using that right? Anyway. The Guns Rights Organization today issued an F rating to bugs bunny for tying up guns into Pretzel Shapes. For more I'm joined by OPR senior alcohol tobacco firearms and explosive correspondent Marcy Hammond mercy. What was the NRA's thinking here while the NRA reserved. The F. rating figures at deems is particularly harmful to the rights of gun owners and leadership believes that bugs his long history of firearm destruction qualifies him. Here's how NRA deputy spokesperson Rhonda mcdaniel. Explain their decision time and time. Again, we have seen this radical agitators seeking to curtail the Second Amendment Rights of Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam by twisting their lawfully purchased firearms into a big bowl and the NRA has had enough. Now let's be clear. Bugs is a beloved cultural figure with relatively little political sway is it really in line with Americans interest for a gun lobby to be targeting him round the NRA certainly thinks. So while the organization has been weakened over the years due to lawsuits and falling public opinion they signal, they'll be devoting considerable resources to getting what they call a no. Good Rascal Rabbit here's mcdaniel. Again, if these sort of left distant imitation tactics prevail, we're looking at a future where government agents can just come to your home while you're sleeping and bend your gun into a youth shape or jammed the barrels with carrots coastal elites like bugs bunny may be okay with that outcome, but real Americans will never stand for it mercy. Some have accused the gun right's organization of not caring about tune rights they pushed for decades to deregulate bazookas. Dynamite sticks coming from the ACME company. That's true. But the NRA would point you to their a rating for Marvin, the Martian. For providing what they call a sterling example of responsible gun ownership. Sure. But do they have any other tactics to push back against what they see boxes anti-gun stance while the F. reading a tactic in and of itself of course. But beyond that NRA leadership announced, they'll be launching a public pressure campaign encouraging members to email and tweet bugs bunny to tell him actions are harming the American way of life. They're also lobbying Congress to remove him from television claiming that he's been brainwashing our nation's children with anti-gun propaganda, and if those tactics are unsuccessful, they have plans to draw big angle on his head. To, imagine that this separating didn't sit very well with everyone. That's certainly true. Leslie several gun control groups have spoken out against the move with MOMS demand action launching a new ancient stinker ad campaign targeting the NRA. Responded not personally, but a spokesperson reached out to tell reporters quote meet me. Okay. Then Marcie please keep us updated. That's OPR's Marcy

Unemployed still waiting for checks as states struggle to pay out stimulus funds

"The end of week three. I think check me on that of the greater parts of this economy being shut down as we saw the unemployment claims numbers. The damage is mounting. Even as political talk turns to reopening this economy so here for five maybe five and a half. I don't know we'll see minutes of live radio to look back and examine our headlong from the Washington Post also debris from politico. Hayatou kyw heather. Let me start with you And the Federal Reserve Chair Powell. I guess yesterday with that Big Move On getting more money this money into this economy two point three trillion dollars He is done kidding around the oppression I get. He has come out firing every bazooka. He's got really quickly and the stock market loves it. People keep asking. Why did the stock market rally ten percent this week? Even we have seventeen million people out of work and a big part of that is the Federal Reserve is keeps putting out massive amounts of money to backstop pretty much every part of of the market. What's new this week is for the first time. Ever the Fed announced it is actually going to make direct loans to companies and two states and municipalities. So that's never happened before and it tells you how cash-strapped and desperate for cash so many parts of the economy are all right so we're GONNA get to the disconnect between the markets and the real economy which pal talks about a lot in in his address in his remarks. Yesterday was the real economy but seeped. Sudip talked to me for a second about the congress of the United States representatives of the people and where they are in this whole crisis are mostly playing along. This is kind of Remarkable to see we've we a decade ago and since then I've had some pretty brutal discussions about the philosophy of government intervening in the economy and today most of the discussions are about tactics. There about how do you have the government intervening the economy? Not whether the government should intervene. And so you have Republican lawmakers who are trying to one up each other In in coming up with ways to inject more money into the economy Senator Josh Holly. From Missouri is is proposing that we just have the government pay. Everybody just like pour money in and pay everyone. Don't even worry about trying to route it through businesses which actually is probably a cleaner way to do it just have the government do total takeover of the economy for X. number of months the big problem is nobody knows what that excess right good point and it's the only thing was really really interesting but heather. I do wonder whether Congress appreciates the velocity with which Things are happening while they're certainly trying to make things happen. But it's it's just not fast enough when you have this. Many PEOPLE SEVENTEEN MILLION UNEMPLOYED. Who are trying to get these unemployment benefits A lot of people I talk to you know. They've called a hundred times a day to try to get through to an office to get this this aid in this relief and two or three weeks later they still haven't gotten their first check Same thing was small businesses. I talked to a small business center this week from Michigan and he called the small business administration to check up on where his lone and he was caller number. Sixteen thousand something and then have a phone and so I think the government and government terms that are acting at warp speed at light speed if he will but for the real economy we have never seen a deterioration this quick and like less than a month and it just the money is not getting out fast enough so deep as I said political talk is starting to turn to turn to actually now for a week or two. The idea of reopening this government Do you think it's possible to get things going again? in stages as summer talking about. Yeah it is possible for for us to do what is called reopening the economy but what that actually means is going to be really different reality than just seeing that it's happening is going to obviously happens slowly and deliberately most of Montana and Wyoming GonNa come back a lot faster than most of New York and California. But what does it look like when you have restaurants being ordered that they have to have every other table empty? Maybe every everyday every restaurant will have half of their seats. A third of their seats They can actually fill. That's going to continue throughout the summer. And maybe into the fall and so when we when we We talk about reopening the economy. There's a false sense that maybe it's like flipping switch and it's not. It's like slowly releasing a valve and letting people come back in With masks on wearing gloves like you've never seen before and it will look like a very different system and it's not going to inspire confidence in most people To to have that slow process. But it's certainly better than where we are right now with everything shut down for the foreseeable next week's stores to be done about definitions of terms and what that means Heather long really quickly and by really quickly. I mean like thirty seconds The markets are looking at the economy. And saying I don't really care. The feds give me is two trillion dollars. There's a disconnect here between Wall Street and the Real Economy Right. There definitely is right now. The other thing is the markets looking about six months out. And it's starting to see some weird glimmer of hope in that ideas. Zombie economy that. We were just talking about that. What if it partially reopened? While at least they'll be some money flowing again but of course if you're a small business owner who may who might have fifty percent of tables filled and the rest of the restaurant empty.

"Am Dan bazooka. Join tear by Chris Chris. How you doing today? Not too too bad. Yeah. We're getting close to the draft. We can stop talking about it in. Oh about a week. We are kidding very close under a week until round one in within a week. This will be completely over and everything we have built up for the past like six months, we've been we've been doing draft podcasts and all of that will just be over and the draftable of happened in the giants will have players. So we are going to talk about some some strategies the giants could use in day three where they have a lot of picks. A lot of what we've talked about mostly has been what they're going to do in the first round. And and the first two rounds really because that's where most of the focus is with the. Really good players. We're going to focus on some day three strategies in a little bit of I we're going to just do a roundup of some things that have happened over the past week or so that we haven't really discussed. We're just going to do some quick hits on them. The first thing is sterling Shepard's contract extension. We briefly touched on it. We wanted to wait to talk about it until the actual contract. Details were out and we had kind of the year by year break down. Those finally came out so shepherd signed to a four year forty one million dollars extension. Twenty one point two six of that is guaranteed. There's a ten point two five million dollars signing bonus. Now in terms of twenty nineteen which is going to be the last year of his rookie deal. The only money added is the prorated portion of that signing bonus. So he will always count three point three nine million dollars on the cap for twenty nineteen a which is good because the giants did not have a lot of cap space who work with in two thousand nineteen but they have. A lot more going forward. So this contract is a four year extension. It goes through twenty twenty three in that time his cap. It goes eight point five million nine million ten point five million to eleven point five million. So it's a very gradual increase every year. Even though there is twenty one million guaranteed that mostly just comes in the first two years. And as soon as twenty twenty the giants could technically get out of that contract and say, maybe a trade comes year after signing extension. I don't know why that would be an option, you know. Maybe if that comes up some time, but the giants are already in the green if that happens for the twenty twenty season just in terms of this extension. Even happening is kind of a surprise. Yeah. The giants just do not extend players before their rookie deal is up. They just don't do it. I can't remember the last. Maybe maybe it was Eli. Well, technically will Beatty and Odell Beckham. But to get a deal like this done this far advanced, they just don't do it. No. And it's it's a good strategy that Maura teams should use c team. Like the Philadelphia Eagles is consistently resigning their guys before they need to or before they're about to hit the market that usually gets them below market deal, and it works out in the long term that was part of the land and Collins discussion where if a contract extension could have been made before he was about to hit the market. He probably could have been had for below that franchise tag price, and well below what he signed for in Washington but shepherd is on pre good deal, especially considering a what wide receivers signed for this season. You had like Terrell Williams who went for like eleven million dollars a year you dip in funny..

'Eighth Grade' and the vagaries of awards season

"From the broadcast center at K P, C C. This is the frame I'm John horn on today's show could future Academy Award ceremonies honor the best screenplay written by an algorithm. Then why Bo Burnham the writer director of eighth grade channeled his feelings about the internet into the character of a thirteen year old girl, I I was very interested in young people flogging about their own life. And I watched hundreds and hundreds of videos and not to be cruel to the boys. But on average, the boys of this age talked about XBox and the girls this age talked about their souls and musician and photographer Anthony Wilson combines both disciplines for his latest release all that coming up on the frame. Welcome to the frame. I'm John horn. This Sunday, they'll be an Oscar for best original screenplay and for best adapted screenplay. But could there soon be a trophy for best screenplay written by an algorithm? We've known for years that technology is radically changing the way that movies are made. But what's remained fairly constant is the human screenwriter after all you can't make a movie without someone writing the script. Or can you if one artificial intelligence company has its way there's an algorithm out there that might be fighting for a share of the writing credit on the next studio blockbuster. We now revisit our peace with frame contributor, Colin freezing. Who explains it all if Robert Altman's movie, the player taught us anything it's that making a hit movie takes a lot of creativity. And frankly, guesswork psychic political thriller comedy with a heart with a heart and not unlike ghost meets entry and candidate conventional wisdom has it that no one ever knows exactly. Audiences want or what will get butts in the seats? But screenwriter William Goldman's aphorism that in Hollywood, no one knows anything may be changing. Here at the American film market in Santa Monica where the world comes to buy and sell movies. There's a company that thinks it can answer that question William Santer, Jack, Jan or with productivity media, and they're here to introduce an artificial intelligence program that will read your script analyze it for forty thousand data points or attributes then we'll tell you how to change it to make it more successful a horror film that features a ghost and the child imperilled has a eighty seven percent probability of overperforming. The benchmark the other day we actually had a conversation on. What kind of weapon with the youth in action film? We have all the kind of what kinds of breakdowns if you use a pistol compared to a handgun compared to a machine gun. We have all these planning or details of of these attributes you put all of that in and you go, you know, what if we changed the handgun to a bazooka this should outperform. We can we can see how it would into the program draws on a database of three thousand eight hundred films going back to the nineties it tracks what elements were in a movie, and how well that film did in any number of demographic groups computer will do a first run and say hope these are the potential elements, and you know, and we have recently started working on getting another layer people looking at those attributes and see, you know, how how actual relevant they are the story. So it's to stop. It's definitely a when you think about it. It's a complex problem solving. Right. The comedy drama or. Thriller. Their gold is to help any genre pitcher become the most successful version of itself. It can be they call it over performing the market or making sure you're cross generational buddy cop comedy with a dog does better than any other cross generational buddy cop comedy with a dog. It's like getting studio notes, but not from some slick executive with a gut feeling but from a coldly calculating cyborg. So it's just a tool set to I always say do one of two fundamental things. Number one is going to confirm what you believe to be true about your project or two it's going to give you an opportunity to ask another question. It all started just a couple of years ago. Jan an engineering student at the university of Waterloo in Canada, cold called the company called productivity media amid sized film. Finance firm Jiang was selling an algorithm that would predict how well a studio would do based on the movies. They were releasing. He. Intrigue the company decided to conduct an experiment using Jiang's database. They paid a film student. Make a trailer with all the key elements of a successful horror film impossible things a movie that doesn't really exist. Features of equestrian house in bath tub and a ghost in child in peril. It's honestly not much to look at. But the response on social media two point four million views was enough to tell them they were on the right track. But this feels like something we should resist to keep creativity alive. Monica Levinson is the president of production at shift Hans pitchers, the company has produced trombone and captain fantastic. And a ton of other. Well, reviewed dramas Levinson is not only skeptical, but worries that drawing on films that were successful sometimes formulaic retreads with mostly white actors might mean, there's no place at the table for new voices and diverse casting choices other things that we're trying to deal with now having more women characters and having better representation. And diversity and better representation of you know, just how characters behave all of that will be continued because that bias will continue from what worked in the past. That's not what works today, but productivity media says there's room in their analytics for all kinds of creative progressive choices take the gay coming of age drama and Oscar winner moonlight. When they ran that script through the algorithm. It determine the film would definitely find an audience before you also made tell based on two essential element in the film to have about eighty percent chance to before in the marketplace. And what was it about the movie that made you think we're made the algorithm think that it was going to do? Well, when we plugging, you know, a drama film with LGBT Salomonsson features African American. Essential elements, those the combination of those three already has a very significant influence on the outcome. But it does beg the question. If everyone is making a movie with the same elements won't that result him. Well, the same kind of movies coming out Santer says you need to think of it like music, if we said to heal whole bunch of musicians that we wanna song that's written in four four time in the key of c with this progression etcetera etcetera, etcetera, we're we're going to get you know, twenty different songs as for how screenwriters will react when. And if they're script feedback comes from an algorithm, maybe nNcholas cage playing version of screenwriter, Charlie Kaufman in adept Haitian, summed it up best sex or guns or car chases. I or characters you know. Learning profound life lessons or growing or coming to like each other or overcoming obstacles to succeed in the end. You know? I feel very strongly about this or the frame. I'm pollen freezing. Coming up on the frame our conversation with Bo Burnham the filmmaker behind eighth grade. He won the best original screenplay prize from the writers guild of America this past weekend. And he's nominated for best feature and best first screenplay at tomorrow's independent spirit awards. Welcome back to the frame. I'm John horn. Thanks for joining us tomorrow, independent filmmakers will gather under a massive tent set up in the parking lot next to the Santa Monica. Pier. To celebrate the spirit awards they honor movies typically made outside the studio system. Among the nominated movies is eighth grade. It's in the running for four awards including best feature. The comedian. Bo Burnham who made it big on the internet as a teenager with YouTube videos wrote and directed eighth grade. And earlier this month, he won the directors guild of America award for first feature film, eighth grade is about a thirteen year old girl named Kayla who makes self help videos from her bedroom. Kayla's played by the newcomer Elsie Fisher, and the movie immerses you in her point of view in one scene. She's lying in bed scrolling through social media while an NGO song plays in the background when I met. Bo. Burnham after eighth grade premiered at last year Sundance film. Festival. He told me how he was able to reach Enya to license. Her song for his movie was like do. I write a note on like a salmon and put it new Fridays. Like, how do you contact like, how do you? Like like, a smokes they go on the air.

"So I wanna do more. I like it. I liked it. I'm doing well from I guess that's not my number one goal. My number one go by far is to do over my audience. I intentionally don't want to even get in my head that I've got to promote from my guess because then I started just my questions in a more promotional, and that's why also refuse to take any affiliate commissions for my guests, which I know a lot of other podcasters, that's not me. So let me start asking a question that you may not feel super comfortable with just reach out. Actually, PR that converts how much revenue you doing with that. So this is third year a hundred hundred fifty thousand this year. Probably almost the year's almost over. Okay. Be around there this and overall what percentage of your business is it? Maybe late twenty percent of everything that I do or Kahn. So it's pretty good. So I want to just be a little concrete about what that means before we talk about how you built this up on your website. It says steel unconventional PR hacks from the guy who grew a startup from zero to forty million views per month. And then there's a button that says enroll now what is it? It's a course and way for people to do few calls one on one with me after videos. Okay. That's all this. All right. Great. And and why don't we go back? I'd like to go back and get a sense of who people are by going back in time to their childhood. And I'm kinda glad that our producer talk to you about this. Because bazooka was your first business transaction where were you living that you could get into the bazooka business Soviet Union right before it was broke up in the nineties late eighties nineties and bazooka gum was the name of the game that then. Everyone liked bazooka. It was inexpensive. You can go to the store and buy little thing of it. And so how would you make money from zook as a kid and had these little inserts? I don't know if anybody remembers, but he's little inserts inside there. So I would these big big currency back in the day with by when my friends, and so a friend of mine basically didn't like to eat his mom's cooking. So I created we'll deal with him. I'd say all right when they eat, whatever you mom cooks. And she doesn't have to know that you're portion, but you have to do inserts. And then I would take his inserts. And there was this other guy who used to buy off, all And and. I have like I'm looking at some you. You linked me to them to make sure that I understood them. But I I know what this is it's little like four, panel comics and Donald Duck. I think was in some and there was bazooka Joe and others. And so you he would give you the inserts in exchange for eating his mom's cooking, and I would take them. I would take the will inserts and would go and sell it to cost. Of course, it was like older kid and a little money and he smoked like small. I don't know. He was cool. And so I would sell them to him and take the money in by a Snickers bar stickers. Bars were kind of like very hard to come by that were sold. Mike, you know, special places of unique Laker window display. We have to save up. That was my. I sometimes get really frustrated with were can get really tense about it. And what I try to do is remember how fun the old candy business was that.

"Matt Miller, and I'm Markus Karlsson right here in London where it's just gone six. Thirty AM seven thirty were matters. And this of course is Bloomberg daybreak Europe. We are looking at Beijing stocks that are rising this morning and really the central story is the rally in Chinese shares. The strongest rally that we've seen in Chinese shares in two years time driven by Mario Draghi bazooka style statement from the president Xi Jingping he unwavering support for the country's private sector at the same time. We had an ex expected news of an expected tax cut plan. But it looks like it's broader than the market expected. So you have what? Now looks like a rally of let's see eight percent and the three hundred over the last two sessions right now, let's CSI three hundred the broader Chinese index is up five percent. The Shenzhen cop is up five and a half percent. So absolutely massive games in Chinese stocks. And the question is will that carry through to the European session will carry all the way through to the US session? Because clearly this is a local issue. They're also coupled with the fact that the Chinese stock market was down thirty percent from ties into Friday's into Friday's open. So right now, we see a little bit of strength in the dollar against the yen. That means people aren't seeking safe haven in the Japanese currency. We see a little bit of sailing in US treasuries. The yield creeping up backed up to three point two percent. So people aren't seeking safe haven there. We do see a little bit of a climbing gold. The mlive question of the day is does this gold rally mean that investors in risk assets should have a little bit of fear because it looks like some corners, the market are seeking safe haven and gold as they used to store. That's it's an interesting question. I think although we haven't seen much of a rally. You can't really tell there is a rallying Golden's. You look at a chart, and it's also not a very big rally. But the question is is gold really a safe haven asset anymore. Yeah. Absolutely. At the same time, though, it needs to be said that we've seen the hedge funds and other large investors cut their bearish bets on gold. So the question is whether the precious metal is going to be heading next amount. We also need to talk about daybreak newsletter which is out on customer terminals said this morning as per usual bringing you all the news that you need to start your day. Let's get a check of the top headlines with daybreak editor Christine buck who is live for us out of Dubai this morning. Let's kick it off with Brexit, shall we Christine. Theresa May outlining progress on Brexit in parliament today, calling an exit deal ninety five percent complete. So so just five percent to go those five percent. They can be quite difficult. Presumably that we've had the entire time. Yeah. I have to say. When I was reading the statement that was prepared prior to her update your parliament's today. I thought that that ninety five percent was quite interesting and also a little bit misleading considering that that lasts five percent is probably the biggest component. Or is the biggest component of getting a Brexit deal over the line, and is probably contingent the rest of it getting through at all. Anyways, what prime minister will say is that the deals ninety five per cent complete after progress over the last three weeks on issues of avoiding a heart Irish border on Cyprus on the arrangements for Gibraltar and over the weekend in the last couple of days. It just seems like we've seen some further signs that the UK is softening on Brexit in order to push this deal over the line specifically when it comes to coming up with some sort of backstop resolution, the latest really is that the the EU wants to keep the UK tied to the customs union for an indefinite amount of time until they come up with some sort of longer term solution. The UK had previously said that it was just absolutely not going to tolerate that. However now, we are seeing signs that maybe Britain is willing to accept something like that something that may keep it in the customer Jean without any fixed end date. So we may see some developments on that on the days ahead, and and it's just worth noting. If Theresa May does go ahead with something like that. Undoubtedly we will see some backlash from Brexit, tears and her and her administration crunch time, then for Brexit. Let's get the story that I mean, this is the story. I think European markets are gonna be most focused on today. Italy's populist coalition says it's going to push forward with its budget and the deficit issues the debt the deficit that it's that is plan. That's presented. That's going to cause a problem with the EU on the other hand, you had a downgrade of their debt on Friday that maybe didn't turn out as bad as it could have because they have a stable outlook now from Moody's. Yeah. That's exactly right. So while on Friday Moody's downgrade Italy's credit rating to one notch above junk got three. It did say or Moody's rather did switch. It's outlook for Italy to stable basically, saying that some of Italy's credit Strang's balances some of the negatives. And some of the concerns about about the fiscal policies, and whether or not Italy is going to be able to push through. Structural reforms now sock specifically has said that that particular outlook probably the softest possible. One that we could have seen and expects that that will deliver a boost to tally in assets today because it kind of removes some uncertainty about the outlook given that things are now stable, so we've got all that going on as you said, we'll also be waiting to see what happens. I'm Italian leaders are due today to provide a deeper explanation of their budget proposals to to the EU. So we'll be waiting on. Now, we also get a Fitch trading later this, yuck. Not OB. That'll be key as well. Yep. Friday, right. That's when Fitch rating comes out. Let's also stay in Italy fulsome corporate news, we've heard that is sending its Morelli units. KKR's Calsonic can say yes, this is true. And this is a deal that's going to be worth seven point one billion dollars or about six point two billion euros. So Fiat Chrysler selling its Morelli unit to KKR's Calsonic is significant for a couple of reasons. I mean, it's the first big deal is being done by Fiat under the new CEO, Mike Manley. It's also going to create an auto parts maker with more than seventeen billion dollars in annual revenue was quite large and BI says that the.

"Is the algorithm is the algorithm the problem what is an algorithm algorithm is in a way is the dissolution of the engineering dream this idea that you could just come up with an automated robotic way of dealing with the messy complexities of human life but i think the problem is the hubris that's embedded in that approach this idea that we can find the perfect scientific solution to things sometimes just gives too much power to the people who are in charge of the system and sometimes the people in charge of the system they like to say that the running things in the name of science but really they're running a company to make profit and i think that's part of bazooka berg delusion was that he presented himself as somebody who was governing his system in the name of reason but in fact he was really tried to addict to his platform and make as much money as possible even as an algorithm mindlessly implements its procedures and learns to see new patterns in the data it reflects the minds of its creators the motives of its trainers computer scientists you wrote talk about torturing the data until it confesses what is it that the computer engineer wants the data to say the engineers coming at it with a whole set of assumptions and there's a whole lot of social scientific work that shows that algorithms can replicate some of the racial and gender bias is of the engineers who create the algorithms so these algorithms are not neutral parties in themselves and they continuously study s and decide a lot of things for us and your frightened that we are outsourcing are thinking to the organizations that run the machines but what else is new we always knew that right apparently not i think that but we see in these recent controversies over facebook is that we largely accepted facebook's own view of itself we thought all right well maybe that data is.

"To your home with a machete to try to hack up your family or whatever that'll solve that problem violence in that case will solve it permanently but in the case of the state they'll just keep sending agents after you and eventually it will come to a very bitter end and then they'll use you as the excuse after the fact they'll say oh this is why we need more police this is why we need police having more guns the police need to have more bearcats and tanks and other armored personnel carriers we need bazookas we need sniper rifles and they use the violent people like the guy that got the kill dozer out and went townhall and all of that they use them as the excuse for more security more police state so anyway go ahead with your thoughts i'd say even don't even if even if somebody doesn't come out and do that they will produce somebody they'll they'll put a pazzi pazzi and so i don't know that it really makes much difference because if everybody was peaceful peaceful they would just they would invent some violent and maybe they have and dan they certainly could certainly do that in the future but at the very least then i'm not doing it at least they can't blame me for it in that particular case and even if they do bring somebody out who's a supposed liber tarian who goes off on a crazy violent streak at the very least we can speak out against that and say yeah we don't know this guy right you know he came to town he started talking about violence we told him to take a hike and that's happened here before by the way so we've had people show up in this community gene who have appeared here nobody knows who they are or sometime somebody does know them i remember one time silver dave brought a dude over.
